      These farmers passages are much needed and required. Therefore it is very good to see these kind of works being carried out. Well done to the Hon Camilleri & the Zebbug Local Councillors. Further road works are also required.

      Triq Ghajn Hosna from Xaghra to Ramla needs crash barriers immediately. Gozo has the need for more crash barriers and street signs.
